New Federal Courthouse

The $70 million, 260,000-square-foot, gleaming structure was designed by cutting-edge architect Thom Mayne - winner of 2005's Pritzker Prize, architecture's top award - and his California design firm, Morphosis. DLR Group of Portland was the architect of record.

The building's first three floors are typical cast-in-place concrete sections, while the upper part is all swooping curves of brushed stainless steel and glass.

busybee36 A great set of shots, especially the reflections in #2. I also love the sculpture - it looks like the shavings you get when you sharpen a pencil!

camilleauteuil I like the alliance of the right lines of the building with the artistic spiral next size down, - and the alliance of glasses with the light !
